About

ESG Legal Solutions, LLC is a majority woman owned consulting firm owned and operated by attorneys who provide experienced professional advice in a broad breadth of business matters including the emergent space of Environmental Social Governance (ESG).

Today, businesses are being pulled into or have in some cases dived into the risk and opportunity that is ESG. Many companies are under pressure to articulate ESG policies and practices, sometimes on what are controversial mattes, while c-suites and boards of directors are struggling to navigate in this new space.

We strive not only to mitigate ESG risk but work with businesses to maximize ESG opportunities. Today, reputational risk is real in the realm of sustainability, but so is the opportunity for a company to stay relevant incorporating ESG into management and governance practices. If the organization wants the very best employees (.. think human capital) and to keep its very best customers and attract new customers (.. current and future revenues), in most business sectors, today, actively participating in the ESG space is of import. There are existing federal and state laws, but preparing for new statutes, regulations and guidance is just that, new, and something most companies and their existing counsel have no experience with. Much of our work is preparing clients to thrive in the all but certain and fast approaching more prescriptive ESG regulatory framework.

By engaging ESG Legal Solutions, businesses from public companies to mom and pop businesses and the not for profit sector all have access to deeper and wider levels of expertise than are available at a traditional law firm or consultant. We offer unbundled professional services from educating boards of directors and c-suites about the ABCs of ESG, enhancing leadership diversity, increasing board expertise, and inspiring management success; to undertaking regulatory required factual investigation and drafting language for SEC filings; to evaluating opportunities for market differentiation from competitors while remaining in compliance with materiality rules and with the FTC Green Guides; and, the full range of turn key ESG related services.

We know that no two businesses response to these matters will be the same. ESG Legal Solutions can provide a business with well researched data and dialogue on these issues as a business explores how to better integrate sustainability into their governance practices.
